It was a mouth-watering afternoon at the Deck Restaurant at La Phare Bleu on Tuesday as Grenada-born celebrity chef Yvette La Crette amazed the eyes…and the taste buds with an assortment of amazing dishes made from mainly local ingredients.
The local media was called in to sample the fares as La Phare Bleu/ the Deck Restaurant partnered with chef laCrette to put Grenada on the map of the world in hospitality and cuisine.
There the media got to enthusiastically sample; fish cake with a spicy tamarind sauce, tamarind BBQ wings, breadfruit & Callaloo pie, mango shrimp skewer sautéd in Clark’s Court rum and mango sauce among other very tasty dishes.
Owner of Le Phare Bleu, Dieter Burkhalter expressed excitement at the cooperation with chef La Crette as she is an international chef with very deep roots in Grenada. He noted that The Deck Restaurant would be concentrating on Grenadian ingredients on a higher level hinting at some really tasty foods on the menu. He sees Chef La Crette as a perfect way to bring the added attraction to their menu dishes.
Mr Burkhalter noted that for five days Ms La Crette was involved in the intensive training of the staff on some signature pieces for the restaurant, which will be implemented and re-launched on October 9th on a new menu list. The chef will regularly visit the deck restaurant to provide ongoing training and direction to the staff as a means of maintaining the high standard of service she is known for.
Speaking to the Grenada Informer Chef La Crette who said that she has been a chef for over twenty years and has come back to Grenada with the main aim to incorporate some of the island’s local spices, fruits and vegetables as well as some of the local rums to our dishes to make very tasty fares on the menu
She noted that Grenada is known for its rich spices and there is a wide variety of local food items that can be blended and added to our dishes to replace imported ingredients and make our dishes tasty.
